Dodge Ram Trucks?


Recommended Posts

The community I live in refuses to use salt regardless of winter conditions.  Instead they drop cinders and plenty of them which become a pain to clean up in early spring but do no lasting damage.  There was a lot of bitching several years back when they started this but seems now folks are coming round to their thinking, which is good because they aren't changing things.

I have owned a string of 3500 and 2500 Rams, all diesel.  They have been reliable and all were over 250,000 miles when sold for better than expected money.  I am about to purchase a 2019 but it will p

A major "pet peeve" here in Ma .  An inch of snow is coming , we got plenty of money , let's spread a ton of salt on the ground so that these poor souls can get out of their driveway . RIDICULOUS

I was wondering if anyone would pick up on that lol.  Sadly yes, Snow, ice, sun, rain,......rinse repeat.   After a light snow or ice event you could cure a ham on any of our roads.  The par

Rusted vehicles are part of living in the Northeast. "Permanent" undercoating only lasts so long. The new  Fluid Film lubricant stuff applied on undercarriage/frame once a year has become popular. I have a friend who lives in New England and is now vacationing in FL. He is looking to but a used FL truck to drive home, and start the rusting process.

 

FWIW. Dodge trucks are the truck of choice in south central TX, preferably dually's with huge grill guards. 

 

Granted I have a Ram 2500 and the larger Hemi 6.4L but regardless of that fact....

 

My interpretation of your Texas observation is the market in many states like TX prefers the Cummins and that for good or bad comes wrapped in a Ram.  The old joke is I didn't buy the Ram, I bought the Cummins and it came with the Ram.

 

The good news is the Rams have improved leaps and bounds in quality etc. from where they were a decade ago.  When I bought my 2014, the redesign that year was leaps and bounds above the competition as I am brand agnostic in the heavy duty/super duty/pecker measuring segment.

They love those Dually's in Texas.  Always assumed it was so they could tow big cattle trailers full of long horns.

I have a 2014 RAM Sport pkg, absolutely the best truck I have ever owned. Great mileage, power to spare in the HEMI. Awesome creature comforts.Only issue I have has was broken exhaust manifold bolts last Fall. More of an annoyance.

Funny thing about it though, there isn't a CD player in it. That took some getting used to. One more reason to love Willies Road House on the SAT.

It is my daily drive so it has racked up the miles or kilometers here, currently at just past190,000 km. I expect to get quite a few years out of it yet. Keep up the maint and your RAM will last.

What is great mileage for a Ram (mpg, not km/l as I'm easily confused by numbers) ?  My Dakota hasn't been great at lows of 12mpg in the winter to 17mpg at best on the highway.  It does have both a cassette AND CD player, I dread buying anything newer.

Look up dodge in the dictionary. It says “to avoid”. 

 

That's about as silly as this:

I'll have to check the truck data then convert to mpg.
